DMS is designing an affordable, adaptive reuse project at 49 Sixth Street, Cambridge MA with the Boston non-profit POAH.

Formerly an abandoned convent, school and annex buildings, the property is being converted into 46 affordable rental apartments with housing options for a range of resident incomes. It is 100% affordable through the Boston-based non-profit, Preservation of Affordable Housing (POAH.) As part of the renovation, the structures’ historic facades and interiors will be restored.

DMS Design proudly announces that Sid Silveira was awarded the RI Day of Portugal Veteran’s Memorial design commission.

The mission of the memorial is to honor the fallen men and women of Rhode Island’s Portuguese Community and the competition was open to Portuguese and Luso-American architectural designers.

As a first generation Portuguese American, and someone who has relatives and friends that served in the United States Armed Forces, it was Sid’s great honor to develop the design for this Veterans’ Memorial. “I was very surprised to learn that the service men and women of Portuguese descent did not yet have an appropriate monument to honor their dedication and commitment to the American people,” notes Sid Silveira, Senior Project Associate at DMS.
The memorial will be located at the Rhode Island Veteran’s Cemetery in Exeter and the unveiling is scheduled for Veteran’s Day, November 11, 2022.
